The year was 1974, bobby-socks, greasers, and rock-n-roll was Americana at it’s best…

Television was filled with game shows, soaps and a popular sit-com called Happy Days. While he started out as a secondary character, Arthur H. Fonzarelli, or ‘the Fonz’ ended up being the spotlight in the lives of those on-screen and in real life.

He was a guy’s guy, greased back hair, leather jacket and motorcycle. All the girls wanted to date him, all the guys wanted to be him. He could walk in a room and start a fight, or stop a fight, which was actually the reason he and Richie became friends, but that’s another story. Even though he was a high-school drop-out (eventually getting his diploma), Fonzi was celebrated for the soundness of his moral compass. If the Fonz told you something, it was the truth, the Fonz could be trusted, and if you were his friend, he always had your back.

We celebrate our characters of TV who touch our lives through posters, music, dvd’s, and merchandising. A pair of Fonzie socks, of all things, have shown up at the shop. Granted they aren’t signed, but if they were, I would probably want them myself. Recalling the singular advise Fonzies father gave him, they have never been worn in the rain, for that matter, they have never been worn at all. So, if you’re a Fonzi fan, add this to your collection, pack it away for a day of nostalgia, or put it in your showcase next to the leather jacket and plastic comb that help us step back and remember ‘Happy Days’ and ‘The Fonz’.
